First/last comic navigation
Currently, GC's comic browsing layout has no navigation links to jump directly to the first or last pages of a comic; you do have next/previous "release" links, but for someone like me who releases just one page at a time, these are just redundant next/previous page links--and just trying to navigate from the start of...

Re: Chapter synopsis "max length exceeded" could be more informative

Up to just now it seemed to be fixed, but I did encounter the problem while adding my latest page this evening--I'm not sure how I did it, because after pasting this 399-charactger text chunk into the left-margin version of the synopsis field, the counter said 408/400, and then wouldn't change count as I deleted characters:

Re: No feedback, back button after adding frame; text entry lost going to frame edit

(This it too minor for a new thread and it has to do with adding a frame so I'm lumping it in here. : P)

On the frame Edit page, after you click the "Add Frame" button, the help text in the left-hand margin is still directing you to click the "Add Frame" button.

Re: Release manager says page is missing frames, but it has one

I think I might have published a bunch of pages without frames, then went back and added them.

Re: No feedback, back button after adding frame; text entry lost going to frame edit

Ah, yeah, now I get a generic browser pop-up warning about info I've entered being lost, am I sure I want to proceed--when clicking Edit or View.

I'm not sure that warning would help me a whole lot if I didn't already know what was going on here; I mean, it would stop me from continuing, maybe, but I think I would be pretty confused. This is...

Re: No feedback, back button after adding frame; text entry lost going to frame edit

In general, the two-stage "Release Settings" screen, where at first the title and synopsis entry is in a narrow column on the left, and then after saving or going to editing and back, the title and synopsis entry is in the middle, is kind of confusing, and feels like it could benefit from being made into one cohesive screen.

Re: No feedback, back button after adding frame; text entry lost going to frame edit

I'm not seeing a warning.

- On Edit Comic Details, click "Create new release."
- On Edit Release Settings, enter text in the "Release Title" and "Chapter Synopsis" fields.
- Upload an image.
- Click "Edit" on the thumbnail (did this used to be "Add Frame?" Not sure I'm following my previous report exactly)
- Click "Untitled Release" at the upper left

Re: Chapter synopsis "max length exceeded" could be more informative

Nice!

Ran into a bug with this new feature--this happens in both the left-hand margin version of the field that you get when you're initially entering a new release's info, or the wider version you get to you click "Save changes" after having entered valid title, synopsis, and image info from the initial page:

- Enter text until the character...

Re: Automated frame add suggestions (and a frame help suggestion)

I temporarily removed the frame on this page of mine (I've since restored the frame); when browsing in landscape mode on my phone, the bottom of the page, where the subtitle appears in the image, is off the bottom of the screen. This wouldn't be too bad, except that I can't scroll down to see the...

Re: Browsing my comic in a mobile web browser is awkward

Tapping to get the navigation overlay to appear or disappear is still very hit or miss, though.

Reading List, Notifications, Conversations buttons not functional on forum post pages
While on a forum post page, like this one, the Reading List (eyeball), Notifications (bell), and Conversations (word balloons) buttons on the site's top right menu are not functional: the number normally overlaid on Notifications does not appear, for instance, and clicking on any of the buttons pops up a small, blank...

Release manager says page is missing frames, but it has one
The release manager is telling me this page of mine is missing frames

https://globalcomix.com/c/supermassive-black-hole-a-/chapters/en/8/1/1

but it has a frame, pretty much exactly like my other pages, which the manager is okay with. I can't tell what's wrong with the frame on this one, it looks pretty normal as far as...

Release "Status: release is not published" looks like a radio button
On the release edit page, a readout near the bottom says "Status" followed by a line break, a grey circle, and text to the left of the circle ("release is not published").

The gray circle looks like a standard HTML form "radio" selection element, making this readout rather confusing--I was wondering why "release is not...

Chapter synopsis "max length exceeded" could be more informative
After typing out a "synopsis" entry for a new release, I got a "max length exceeded" error when clicking the "Save changes" button.

But there is no indication of what the max length is, or how far I was over it, leaving me to try cutting my text down via trial and error until the page would finally save without the...

Automated frame add suggestions (and a frame help suggestion)
Since I have a single-frame comic, selfishly speaking I would find it really handy if GC, in the absence of me adding a frame, would just add a frame around the whole comic image automatically.

As it is, I have to go in and add a frame to every page, or risk wonky mobile page visibility.

No feedback, back button after adding frame; text entry lost going to frame edit
